The cells could be expanded to 1.6 x [10.sup.5] cells [cm.sup.-2] (total 8.7 x [10.sup.8] cells) achieving an expansion factor of 29.
Caption: Figure 10: Comparison of particle deposition rates between different inhalation depths in the 4-alveoli model: (a) total deposition at different tidal volumes ([V.sub.T]) and the time resolution of sectional cumulative deposition for (b) 2 standard [V.sub.T] (i.e., volume expansion factor: 0.466), (c) 3 standard [V.sub.T] (i.e., volume expansion factor: 0.699), and (d) 4 [V.sub.T] (i.e., volume expansion factor: 0.932).
It can be seen from Table 5 that the variance expansion factor of each variable is very low, with an average value of 1.889, which is far less than 10, indicating that the multicollinearity between variables is small, which can be used to construct the regression model.

Figure 1 shows the expansion factor a(t) as function of the Universe age.
Compared to the initial sample, when the samples were exposed for 48 h, the resistance time degradation reached 43.4%, the fire-resistance time was only 30 min and 48 s (30'48"), the treated layer barely expanded, the thickness of the char was 7.7 mm and the expansion factor was only 4.9.

The analysis of the elliptic flow shows that the expansion factor is characterized by the impact parameter, which is related to participating nucleons.
The highest compressive strength values are obtained for specimen PE1.5-101, which has an expansion factor of 500 [micro], and for specimen PE1.5-8-2, which has an expansion factor of 700 [micro].
In the mid-2000s, there was also a research effort launched (4,5) to improve the expansion factor correlation used in the orifice meter flow equation.
